Those things all work because the internet is open. An 'IoT' device is still a computer that has a right to be on the net like any other. Look, you cant grow anything good without getting some weeds, its the NATURE OF FERTILE GROUND. You have to be very careful how you deal with the weeds or you risk making the ground worthless.

"the only way I can see to stop it is to permanently dismantle the IoT"

How do you do that without breaking the internet? How do you do that without onerous registration or whitelisted hardware? How do you get your way without destroying the network?

There is nothing special about 'the IoT', they are computers on the internet, like any others. Why dont we start with educating people on how to administer and secure their networks before you start taking out your ass again.

More power doesnt have to mean more realism. More power means that you have more options on tap, and have to make less compromises. More particles, more dynamic lighting, larger maps, more enemies are all what comes with more power, not just more detail. Until we can simulate reality down the particle, more power will continue to add fidelity and depth to the experience. Saying its 'good enough' only shows that you have stopped trying to imagine more.

"your downloads are not realtime-sensitive"

How in the hell do you know what my network is doing? More than anything else i take exception with the idea that only defined realtime services are given priority. What is to stop everyone from making their traffic look like VOIP? Again, your bits are no more important than my bits.
